You may have noticed that the blog has been undergoing a few changes recently. I’ve given up on being a “mommy blogger.” It’s just not me, and I can’t be something I’m not. But I am still blogging about fitness and homeschooling. Those are things I really enjoy writing about, so those two blogs will …
I’m a creative person at heart. I love photography, scrapbooking, crocheting and making jewelry in my spare time among other crafts. I find it calming and relaxing, and my life has been pretty stressful lately. The more stressful life is, the more I seem to be drawn to crafting. Over the years I’ve collected quite …
Eden, Dawn: The Chronicles of Paradise
I love to read. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to pick up a book, let alone open it recently. My plate has been overflowing with stuff going on and I’m lucky I have time to workout in the morning. But I make time to do that. I realized I need to make time for …
Mint.com on Windows Phone
Recently, I did an interview for Mint.com about how to make the switch to working from home and the personal finance challenges that switch entails. I had a blast doing this interview, and it finally went live on January 12! So please go check it out on their website, and don’t forget to share! (Sorry …
Solo
Many of you probably know, I consider myself a misanthrope. With society the way it is today, I have very little faith in humanity’s ability to evolve and actually live peacefully at some point. However, yesterday, I rescued a dog who found his way to my office. I brought him home, and posted a notice …

While I was at work today, minding my own business, a stray dog wandered into our office. I decided to bring him home so I could take him to see if he has a chip. But until I can get to the vet’s office (or the humane society which is a no kill shelter), I’m …
Media SHower
I recently did an interview for Media Shower, and was asked the following question: What tips do you have for moms (or dads) who want to make the transition from working a full-time job to staying at home? What sort of planning should they do? Biggest considerations? Although the interview hasn’t gone live yet (don’t …
I am, I admit it. They give me that sad little “help me” look and my heart crumbles. It’s one of the two main reasons I’m vegan. My own pets have me wrapped around their little paw. They know exactly how to manipulate me, and they are so good at it. In the past two …
Such a beautiful dragonfly
I’ve always really liked dragonflies. I think they are really pretty. But I’ve never been a fan of insects. In fact, you could say I really hate them. Well, I used to anyway… Recently, I joined a group on Facebook from which I’ve been unable to break away. I’m constantly admiring the photos that other …
Well, you might know some of these, but I think the majority of this list is new to everyone. I realized I haven’t really talked about myself on this blog. I’ve mostly talked about my life and family. So, here is a glimpse into who I am as a person. Enjoy! 10 Things You Don’t …
Seriously!!! We have a pet spider. One of the bricks that surrounds our fireplace has a hole in it, and this spider lives there. I hate spiders. They creep me out. But for some reason, I’ve let this one stay in her current residence, and I have no idea why. Today, I decided the spider …
If you’re a regular reader, you might have noticed that I’ve been missing in action here on the blog for almost two weeks. But I’ve also been posting on my Facebook page almost once a day. What’s up with that? Honestly, I just haven’t felt like writing, and not just here on the blog. I …
Last week’s Wonderful Wednesday theme was gardens. I missed it, but I thought I’d make up for it this week… better late than never right? Even I don’t really have a garden (although I want one), I have several plants in my backyard that really make our home feel like it’s in the middle of …
On Thursday, I received an email stating that the Certificate of Completion for my Medical Neuroscience class was available. I was so excited, I immediately clicked the link and downloaded the pdf file. After staring at it for a few minutes, I decided to print it. It sat on my desk for about 24 hours …
I know it’s Thursday, and this is usually a Monday post, but better late than never right? Its been complete chaos this week…The whole car thing has thrown me off track. But I have been swamped with work… If you haven’t heard (I plastered it all over Facebook), I got my first real client last …
